Browar Stu Mostów is the leader in terms of international collaborations in Poland. In 2016 we completed 6 collaboration projects. The outcome of the most recent cooperation with Jopen will be presented soon. The report includes 5 completed collaboration projects. Here is the gist:
ART#5 Imperial Apricot IPA, January 2016.
We were the first brewery in Poland to cooperate with the American brewery Pizza Boy Brewing from Pennsylvania, the winners of the silver medal at World Beer Cup 2014 in the experimental beer category. We have chosen a legendary style and added apricots.
ART#7 Red German IPL. India Pale Lager, or a much more hopped version of stronger lagers brewed in collaboration with Camba Bavaria, one of the most appreciated German breweries. For the Bavarian brewery, our joint brewing was the first international collaboration. Here is the coverage: https://youtu.be/seWpNGiMoYU
ART#8 Strawberry Berliner Weisse brewed in Berlin-based BRLO brewery. Weisse is a cloudy, sour, wheat beer style with low alcohol contents. This style has been coming back to taps recently. ART#8 had its debut at the 7th Wrocław Good Beer Festival. More information at https://100mostow.pl/blog/2016/05/18/berliner-weisse/
ART#9 Oatmeal Hoptart. Collaborative brewing with the American brewery Brewing. More information at https://100mostow.pl/blog/2016/07/27/art9/ Berliner Weisse with oatmeal flakes and abundance of Australian hops. Today the beer is in the top4 of all times in the Berliner Weisse category. ART#9 won the bronze medal in the category of Speciality Beer: Other Sour Ale at 2016 Brussels Beer Challenge. The beer also won the title of the Debut of the Month by PolskieMinibrowary and the Craft Beer of the Month by Polski Kraft as well as won the ranking of the Berliner Weisse by Piktor at Il Piwo. Most of all, it is in the top4 Berliner Weisse of all times by RateBeer.
Hallertauer IPL Collab. Our first collaboration project outside WRCLW. We brewed invited by Camba Bavaria. The foundation is the Heller Bock beer style. Usually it is not hopped much but with traditional Bavarian hops. We have added quite a lot of new wave hops from the Hallertau region– Huell Melon and Blanc.
